The Flemish-style gables of Soho: probably responsible for starting my whole interest in architecture. This is the latest incarnation of the Blue Posts Inn on the corner of Berwick and Broadwick Streets.

Beautifully refurbished 19th-century shop in Warwick Street - a little further up from the European Bookshop if you're down that way.

Never noticed before . . .

The sculpture above the doorway of Goldbeaters' House (the name back translates to 'the house of goldbeaters [plural]' so the apostrophe (should come) after the 's' if you're wondering) next to Foyles in Manette Street Soho.

This lovely tube map cover design is by Tracey Emin, commissioned by Art on the Underground. The artist has drawn the Central Line as a leafy tree limb, branching off and supporting singing birds. I hadn't seen it before yesterday.
